I think (hope) Wisconsin is showing that they are still very one-dimensional. Northwestern didn't seem to have much of a rushing defense coming into this game, but they appear to have the right gameplan. They just have no offense.Northwestern giving Wisconsin all they can handle right now. This is the brutal defensive battle I think we expected out of Michigan last week. Coan is struggling as well.
NW offense has really struggled all year. And yeah, they look awful on offense. Their defense is playing well but the offense is giving them zero help of any kind.A Wisconsin defender runs through untouched, strips the ball from Hunter Johnson, leading to a scoop and score. 14-3 sconnie.
I hope the NW offense is this bad when we play them.
I disagree. If you make the two-point conversion, whether now or later, you're in the same situation either way. But if you miss the two-point conversion, you're significantly better off knowing that you need another possession with more time left to do something about it.Why the F would Northwestern go for 2 when you could put the game to 8 points by kicking the extra point? Makes no sense at all. They probably weren't going to make the comeback and win anyway but that was just a stupid decision that makes zero sense.
Will be interesting to here what Fitz says when asked about that decision because I can't think of any possible justification that will make any sense.
